The Gilley Pool will be resurfaced prior to pool season opening in 2014 at a cost of $168,544.
McMinnville officials voted unanimously for the measure Tuesday night and again Thursday night.
Work will require the pool to be drained, cleaned, and a base coat applied. Work will also include the installation of new racing lanes and targets, a chair lift, handrails, new deck coating and new depth markers.
Submitting the winning bid was Madison Swimming Pool Company.
The recommendation to go with Madison came out of a joint meeting between the city’s Finance Committee and Parks and Recreation Committee after members heard from Parks and Recreation director Scott McCord.
McCord says the company met all the specifications and gave a completion date of 45 to 60 days.
“Madison Swimming Pool provided us with the specifications for plaster and deck coating to be used which meets the standards laid out in our RFB (request for bids),” said McCord. “They have given an estimated 45 to 60 days to complete.”
The city received two other bids on the project: USA Pools bid $189,800, while Aqua Enterprise bid $223,525.
Funding will come out of Parks and Recreation’s budget for fiscal year 2013-14, with $200,000 set aside for the work.
